That's between 1999 and 2006.
I regularly download the files the RIRs publish on their FTP sites
and generate statistics from them at http://www.bgpexpert.com/
If you go to that page it will tell you the number of addresses
currently given out by IANA or the RIRs to end-users or ISPs:
Fill in "US" under "Country" and it will say:
This means that 55.93% of the address space currently in use is held
by the US according to the RIRs.
